Footer Spam-What to look for in server logs? (1 post)

    Alright, I am getting so sick of the footer spam showing up. I've worked my way through all the steps in the 'MY SITE GOT HACKED' suggestions that keep getting posted (numerous times). Except for the looking at my server logs thing. I just figured out how to see them, and they are big giant files of stuff.

    What kinda thing am I looking for in there? Usually most of the stuff on there looks like date/time IP GET then info on the files

    occasionally there is a POST with register or whatever, all looks normal...

    What am I looking for in terms of having 200 links thrown into my footer? Will it come up as a POST? A bunch of em?

    Thanks again folks.....
